We can make a difference in the education of your child with special needs

How We Can Help

We work individually with each family to understand their specific needs

What Our Clients Are Saying

“Thank you again for your help in turning things around for [our son] his freshman year. We are so grateful for your expertise and skill in
orchestrating the changes that needed to occur to get things on track for success. He has thrived and will earn a modified diploma June 3rd. His case manager since mid-sophomore year and IA since spring freshman year were phenomenal in supporting him, encouraging him, and pushing him to learn and grow. Thanks again for your part in helping him along this journey, with immense gratitude and beat regards.”

If you don’t believe in miracles as soon as you retain Diane, you will! She gave my family hope when we lost all. We were in desperate need of educational support for our son whom went from an A-B student to failing within 1 year. We were in constant communication with the school and doing our part at home, yet there was no change. The school said we’ve exhausted all supports we qualified for, and expected us to take their word. We were unaware of all the legal requirements schools have to adhere to until we retained Diane. Diane was always professional in every meeting, yet stern and ALWAYS spoke with a purpose. The second we retained her we saw a change in our sons support he was receiving, which increased his academic achievements. We’re proud to say our son is graduating high school this year and that accomplishment is in part of her advocacy. If you’re at the point of exhaustion and feel like there is no hope, she will give that to you in your first initial visit. When you think of your children their education is the best investment you can provide for their future. Diane was the best investment we made!”

“Our son is doing FANTASTIC! You have made all of this possible. Your efforts helped get [our son]the team that he deserves and that values him rather than tries to change him and blame him for his challenges. Thank you for everything!!!”

Diane gets things done

“We first hired Diane to work with the school district for a compromise accommodation to enable our daughter’s service dog to attend school with her. We hired her for her reputation of working with the district, and not in a confrontational manner. She worked to cut through bureaucracy and made it happen. She continues to make things happen whether we have needed to switch school/placement for my daughter, or get a reduced hour day with busing. I cannot recommend her more highly.”

“I just wanted to thank you for doing such an outstanding job in our quest to do the right thing for [our son]. When I met you, I knew that you were the right person for the job. You were always prepared and offered us the support we needed.”

We were fortunate to have the Wiscarson firm on our side after our public school district resisted accommodations for our child despite a clear diagnosis and supporting documents. I highly recommend them for anyone going through a similar situation. They are experts in education law and well respected.”
